Former running back issued the following statement today in a release:
"I applaud Governor Corbett's lawsuit against the NCAA's sanctions on Penn State. As a former Penn State student-athlete, I was shocked that the NCAA would take such aggressive actions against the University and athletic programs, punishing current and former students and athletes for crimes they had absolutely nothing to do with."
"I want to thank Governor Corbett for taking action against these unfair and unjust sanctions. He is right -- the NCAA had no authority to enact these sanctions against the University and our football program. I, like many Americans believe in justice; with the NCAA acting as the judge, jury and executioner its process is clearly un-American."

Amen. Hope to see more smart people speak out against the injustice that has been done to Penn State and the football program.
I think the tide is beginning to turn in our favor. Big time.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
Define tide. Outsiders are probably not going to like this, except the ones with a beef against the NCAA.
I agree. I get the feeling, "business is about to pick up."
Love that Dozier called the NCAA "un-American." Goes well with those NZAA and National Communist Athletic Association shirts.

This is a step in the right direction on DJ's part. However there has to be independent support from sources outside of PSU and it's alumni. THAT will take some courage as there are no doubt many with agendas vs PSU who will attack this and anyone who come out in support of it. JFK wrote a book titled Profiles in Courage about people who spoke out or took up unpopular causes. Someone in the media is going to have to get behind this as well but I sure won't hold my breath waiting for it.
which is why i'm so glad this is the state of PA doing it and not PSU. Perfect scenario for Penn State. Regardless, screw the outsiders viewpoints. We all we got!
Jay Bilas is one...I believe others will start coming on board once they realize the NCAA completely overstepped and abused its power.
I think everyone just took the media narrative and NCAA narrative at face value without looking into the legitimacy of the sanctions. We have been pounding the drum as PSU alum and fans, but most outsiders had no idea that the NCAA overstepped its bounds.
The focus is shifting away from Sandusky (easy to do since he's in jail) and towards the NCAA.
Notice their response to the suit...bringing up the victims is a desperate ploy.
Just heard that victim #4 came out and publicaly criticized the NCAA for using them in their statement. Said they were never consulted by the NCAA. Victimizing the victims Emmert is not a good ploy.
Just listened to Tony Kornheiser's radio show today. He said two things:
1. Bill O'Brien cannot leave. Nick Saban can leave, Bill O'Brien cannot.
2. NCAA was wrong and should be sued.
I'm curious what was his rationale for saying OB can't leave?
Anyone recall what he said at the time?
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
I think his reasoning is pretty straight-forward. IF BOB leaves, he will be doing PSU a major dis-service and put us in far worse shape then what we were ever in before. The program will be set back roughly 15+ years easily. The sanctions are bad enough to deal with. Losing a coach who has the chance of a lifetime to change this football program in thousands of different ways, blah.
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
He said that the PSU players committed to him and he went on a tour around the country asking the alumni to believe in him, can't turn his back on all those people he convinced to believe in him.
